On Weds 20th June the play Shebeen starts it’s two week run at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

The Great Get Together (TGGT) is a national event, inspired by Jo Cox, the former MP who was sadly killed on 16th June 2016. She was passionate about addressing loneliness and said ‘young or old, loneliness doesn’t discriminate’.

Tower Hamlets Council has recognised that loneliness and social isolation are a serious health concern that has a detrimental impact on health and wellbeing. They encouraged local groups to setup events, and there are two in Bow that anyone is welcome to attend (bring your own picnic).
